Proposed Project: Reach Out Now National Teach-In Initiative Feedback Form
(OMB No. 0930-0258; Extension, no change)—Under section 515(b) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290bb-21), the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is directed to develop effective alcohol abuse prevention literature and, to assure the widespread dissemination of prevention materials among States, political subdivisions, and school systems. Each April, SAMHSA collaborates with Scholastic Inc. in the April distribution of Reach Out Now: Talk to Your Fifth Grader About Underage Alcohol Use, a supplement created and distributed by Scholastic Inc.
Beginning in April 2004, SAMHSA sponsors an annual national Teach-In to foster a conversation with fifth graders on the dangers of early alcohol use. State substance abuse prevention directors nominate organizations to participate in this program. The Teach-In program builds upon the highly successful national initiative of the Leadership to Keep Children Alcohol Free, which is focused on preventing alcohol use among children ages 9 to 15 and is spearheaded by more than 40 current and past Governors' spouses, who have held or supported Reach Out Now Teach-Ins in their States.
Organizations that agree to participate in this SAMHSA initiative are asked to provide feedback information about the implementation and results of the Teach-In event in their community school. The table that follows provides an estimate of the annual response burden for the feedback form.
